THINKING YOU WANT TO PLAY IN A CONTEMPORARY BAND?

A couple of us are starting a band and now we want to see if anyone else is interested.  So we have booked an ensemble room for June 15 from 4:30 to 6:30pm for an informal pick up session.  No commitment required. Just RSVP FOR JUNE 15 and let me know you are coming.  Then I will send you some music for the session, likely a couple of jazz standards or maybe one rock and roll.  If you are a classical maven but want to give this a try, our pick up session may be your answer.  Email me, Heather Ferguson at heatherferguson01@gmail.com  or give me a call at 250.920.9043.

See you on the flip side!
